In technically driven society, people use various devices to make life simple. Internet connects people globally across the world easily and economically. There is a school of thought that believes a computer has been used as a medium or instrument for commission of cyber crimes like trespass, larceny or conspiracy. Whereas, the other school gives much credence to the unique nature of the emerging technologies and unique set of challenges, unknown to the existing criminal jurisprudence; such as nature and scope of cyber-crimes, intention and difficulty in locating the offender, jurisdiction and enforcement etc.

Cyber crimes are hazardous against different organizations and people who are connected via internet technology. It is a significant challenge to society and can be particu-larly harmful to the individuals.

The objective of the seminar is to disseminate knowledge, create awareness about different forms of cyber crimes in the 21st century and the understanding of the cyber laws, issues and challenges of cyber crimes.
